EQSL downloader frustration rant
A few years ago I provided a link where people could download a small application which enabled you to download all your EQSL cards from their website. Unfortunately it seems that this application is no longer working. I seem to recall a few people leaving messages saying that they couldn't get it to work. I've just tried to install it and it didn't work, I just got an error message so I didn't even bother trying any further.
I am somewhat annoyed though. I just did a search looking for an up-to-date EQSL downloader. My website comes up at number two, obviously that's no good to anyone now. However, I came across another page which supposedly contained the link where you could download the EQSL download utility. Well, it just contains a bunch of advertising links including AdSense. These type of pages are there to make money for whoever owns the page. They are not really bothered in offering you what you are looking for, they are there to trick you into clicking on advertising links which I'm quite sure contravenes some rules somewhere.
Oh well, if somebody comes up with a really good bit of software that enables you to download EQS L cards than let me know.
